The great bloggy give-away had an amazing response last week. Over 500 blogs participating. I didn't get a chance to visit all of those blogs but I tried my best to visit as many as I could (spending waaaaay too much time on here, but who cares, it was all fun!). And I didn't think for one minute that I would win anything - but I did :-)
I won a Coffee/dry mix pack from Angie at Proverbs31wwbe I can't wait for the postman to deliver it.
I've also been surfing around some fun knitting blogs this week too. I just can't get enough of anything 'knitting'. There's not enough hours in the day for me. The more time I spend on here visiting blogs and seeing what others are knitting, the less time I find for actually knitting! I don't know how these gals do it all. They blog very regularly and show great pictures of thier WIP's (work in progress) and FO's (finished objects), I just don't know how they find the time to do it all. I'm lucky if I can knit a few rows of a dishcloth.
I am wanting a challenge and have been out this weekend to buy myself some double-pointed needles. I am going to attempt to knit a pair of socks! Considering I have been knitting since the age of 8, I feel like a newbie when it comes to something like this. Well that's because I AM a newbie. My mom always knit on straight needles and I can only vaguely remember her knitting with 4 needles. It's not something I ever got her to show me. I want to take a sock class sometime in the fall (once Kristen gets back to school) but in the meantime, I thought I'd try a tutorial I found on line. I'll take pictures later this week and come back and post more about my progress here.
